I heard great things about the Parasound. I'm sure it's quite a bit smoother than the XPA-5. The bass from the XPA-5 is a little shy...same with my XPR-5. It seems like the stereo amps have more...

Nice job! Looks like it was a very rewarding trip. Good choice going with the C208. If you have the room and the budget, it's the right move.

Now with the F206, I don't think you can go wrong...

When I bought the C208, I was on the fence between the C205 and the C208. Couple of things, first - I didn't like the fact that the C205 was an MTM design..it was the first Revel center to have such...

With Dirac Full, I don't really see the value in using different mics. I would personally spend my time tweaking the Dirac curve vs. trying different mics.

It's not logically possible to get...

Agreed 100% that the Ultima2 line aesthetically look much nicer and "high end" over the Performa3. And while Revels aren't the best looking speakers in the industry, I doubt people would pass on the...

I had DefTechs prior to getting my F208. If you like your music accurate and want speakers that have a physical "presence", I think the F208 is a better fit than the F206. The F208 are as large as...

Assuming you have Dirac full, the answer is it doesn't matter.

But my one buddy who has Dirac Full got better results from EMM-1, he didn't mess with the target curves.

Not sure why they suggested you use Dirac LE if you wanted to opt for Dirac Full. It's kind of a silly suggestion imho.

I wonder if you will get Firmware 3.1 preloaded...that would be interesting.
